Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Aviation Security and Restore the Public’s Confidence in Air Travel. It needs to be at least 1750 words. On November 19, 2001, Congress enacted the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, which created the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) within the Department of Transportation (DOT) and defined its primary responsibility as ensuring security in all modes of transportation. DOT then worked to strengthen security through its modal administrations while simultaneously organizing the new agency to meet the longer-term challenge of implementing security improvements that will not excessively inhibit commerce and travel or interfere with other critical agency missions. With the passage of the Homeland Security Act on November 25, 2002, TSA was transferred to the new Department of Homeland Security, which assumed overall responsibility for transportation security (GAO -03-616T).

This paper addresses the following major issues (1) what the federal government has done since September 11th to strengthen transportation security, particularly aviation, mass transit, and port security. and (2) the long-term institutional challenges that face the federal agencies responsible for transportation security.

Before September 2001, the work in transportation security-focused largely on aviation security, which was then the responsibility of DOT’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). There were several issues on aviation security that needed attention. These vulnerabilities included failure to detect threats when screening passengers and their carry-on bags prior to their boarding aircraft and the absence of any requirement to screen checked baggage on domestic&nbsp.flights. inadequate controls for limiting access to secure areas at airports. and failure to secure air traffic control computer systems and facilities.&nbsp.
